Agents of the Apocalypse by Dr. David Jeremiah

 Dr. David Jeremiah, well known speaker and author of bible based prophetic books has a new release: Agents of the Apocalypse.  One might wonder how yet another book on Revelation and the apocalypse can be written.  Nevertheless, this new book is written from an entirely new perspective.  Part dramatic fictional account and part biblical commentary, this hybrid genre uses fiction to portray the biblical events predicted in the bible book of revelation.  Through the use of short stories, Dr. David Jeremiah animates abstract bible prophecy to make it more real and relevant for today's modern reader.

In today's culture, apocalyptic books, fiction and movies are gaining popularity.  This trend shows an ever growing interest in this spiritual area.  While many consumers simply find end of the world fiction entertaining- Jeremiah's book provides a unique outreach attempt in combining an entertaining and relevant fiction story with a biblical commentary.  Many readers may find a biblical analysis dry, but this book will hold the reader's attention with fictional, yet realistic accounts of revelation related events.  I this book there are ten revelation related topics covered.  Each chapter, covers one aspect of Revelation and a specific prophetic event.  Each chapter begins starts out with an independent short story- a fictional account, complete with characters and dialog.   The stories  in of themselves are interesting but they also paint a picture of prophetic events of the end times as well.  This is a unique perspective that gives practical insight to prophecy and biblical events. The cover of this book does not convey to the reader- the unique perspective contained.  On the surface, this book seems like a commentary alone; I believe readers will have a special surprise.  As a blogger I received a copy of this book published by Tyndale for the purpose of writing this review.
